a verdict on Harper’s, a hint at the next photo gallery

No Comments 10 November 2006

There’s an article critiquing the November issue of Harper’s Bazaar (the one with Natalie Portman in Audrey’s dress) here. While the author says good things about the dress and Natalie’s short article, she doesn’t much care for the rest of the magazine. The reason? The women in it are too thin. Thankfully, she doesn’t cast blame with Audrey, but still, it’s a glossy fashion magazine — what were you expecting?

We also have a new submission to the lookalikes page, which you can see here. Don’t forget that the lookalikes is totally run by you, the fans, and I don’t submit any of my own. So if you know of an actress or other well-known person that resembles Audrey, send your suggestions to us! There may be voting on the lookalikes soon, to rate which ones look the most like Audrey . . .

Harper’s Bazaar scans

No Comments 05 November 2006

It turns out the drugstore up the street does carry Harper’s, along with other chi-chi magazines you wouldn’t expect next to trashy romance novels. I decided to flip through the November Natalie issue real quick just to see what all was in it, and I found an extra little article that no one seems to have mentioned. So I suffered and bought the magazine just to razor out the pages and scan it for everybody. Actually, it wasn’t all that bad at $3.99 — I think Mad Magazine nearly costs that now, and it’s about a quarter the size of Harper’s. And now you all know that I read Mad on a regular basis. Right.

"Still our Fair Lady," plus "Gardens of the World"

No Comments 02 November 2006

There’s a short article talking about Audrey’s newfound popularity, especially with the recent Gap ads and the new Treasures book. It’s very short (I’ve told you pretty much all that’s in it already), but you can see the full article here.

Next up, thanks to the Audrey Hepburn Circle, I’ve found that the Gardens of the World miniseries now has their own website up! It’s a very Audrey-centric site, and goes more into detail on what’s in the new special edition DVD set, but the best part is Audrey’s full written introduction to the original series and an interview with her about the series. All in all it’s a nice site and definitely worth sharing, so click here to visit for yourself.

Apologies, plus Natalie’s reason for wearing the "Breakfast at Tiffany’s" dress

No Comments 27 October 2006

Firstly, I need to apologize. I’d promised pictures yesterday and today, but the building I work in caught fire today while we were in it, so I’m a little tired and smelly and choky from smoke. Tomorrow, I promise! Thank you for being patient.

Second, an article has come up saying that Natalie Portman decided to wear the Breakfast at Tiffany’s alternate dress that will be auctioned soon in the hopes that it would drum up more interest for the dress, therefore earning more bids and raising more money for charity. I have nothing against Natalie and I even sort of like her, but isn’t it a little vain to think that you wearing the dress would interest more people than Audrey Hepburn herself? Maybe I’m just tired and smelly. Anyway, here’s the link to the full article.

More pictures of Natalie Portman in Audrey’s dress

No Comments 26 October 2006

I found another short article on Natalie Portman wearing Audrey’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s dress (actually, one Audrey didn’t wear), which you can find here. It has a couple more pictures of Nat in the dress, including a full-length which shows her wearing ugly shoes. They look like deck shoes, but with a heel. Ick.

Natalie Portman is Audrey’s "clone," but Audrey was a Martian anyway

3 Comments 09 October 2006

I’ve seen these articles come into my inbox quite a few times now, so I thought I’d share. Apparently Natalie Portman wearing Audrey’s dress is a big deal, leading many to call her our generation’s Audrey Hepburn and Audrey’s clone. Unlike some starlets, Natalie has openly admitted that she could never fill Audrey’s shoes and doesn’t even want to try, which is nice and refreshing and really what people need to hear. She has also said she would never play Audrey in a biopic, so get that idea out of your head. Audrey clone or not though, we could do a lot worse on role models for young women. To view the article, click here.
